As Cointelegraph reported yesterday, the Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve has said that almost nobody uses Bitcoin for payments, and that it is a speculative asset just like gold.
Ether (ETH) is holding onto its position as the largest altcoin by market cap, which currently stands at $28.7 billion. The second-largest altcoin, Ripple’s XRP, has a market cap of $14 billion at press time.
Coin360 data shows that ETH has seen its value decrease by nearly 1% over the last 24 hours. At press time, ETH is trading around $269. On the week, the coin has also lost over 7% of its value.
